School of Governance, Law and Society
The law program is offered in Tallinn and in Helsinki. Courses are scheduled on weekdays in Tallinn and on weekends in Helsinki (Thursdays-Saturdays) and the normal time to complete the program is six semesters. The program is composed of compulsory law courses, module specific courses, and law electives. The program offers two modules, European and International Law, and Finnish Law (offered only in Helsinki). Further, the program includes compulsory practical training – giving students an opportunity to apply the skills and knowledge acquired in the classroom by working under the direction of a practicing legal professional. In the final year of study, students participate in an interdisciplinary project, and have an option to take ‘Advanced Legal Writing and Research’, a course in which students produce a scholarly research paper - similar to a thesis - on a topical legal issue. At the end of the program, students must successfully pass the ‘Law Curriculum Bachelor’s Exam’, which assesses the students’ knowledge of law and the ability to solve legal problems.
